The exceptional terroir of the Voor Paardeberg ward, as well as the grapes cultivated in the area, has been the source of various international wine awards. It is the location of this ward that makes it so unique. The mountain slopes of the Paardeberg, together with the soil composition and prevailing winds, create a specific quality in the grapes. The wines produced at Ayama have the potential to be part of the elite wines of the country.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Vermentino from our vineyards
SOIL TYPE: Paardeberg Mountain sandstone, granite and shale
VINIFICATION: A brief maceration of the skins for the extraction of the varietal aromas precedes the soft pressing of the grapes. Fermented in tank, during the middle of fermentation, the wine is transferred to barrel. Wine is aged on lees for a few
months with weekly batonnages
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Accompanies fish and shellfish dishes, exceptional with oysters.
Ideal with elaborate dishes with truffle or mushrooms. Superb paired with artichokes.
TASTING NOTES: The colour is straw-yellow with golden and greenish reflexes; on the nose it recalls white flowers, with light and fragrant notes of yeast and hazelnut. Flavour is silky and velvety, fresh and soft, with a remarkable structure and power.
